Chrysalis literally means TRANSFORMATION or moving from a state of limbo into an active state. Every space has a raw, transitional quality about it, which can be played up to create a complimentary relationship with the design envisioned in a designers’ mind.
That is the essence of design for us at CHRYSALIS DESIGN STUDIO.
